Name of resource: Algebra Puzzle

Web address: https://www.mathplayground.com/algebra_puzzle.html

How to do it: My method is first find out what one of the symbols are by finding a symbol that has only itself in that column and divide it by how many squares are in the column to get that symbol.

You use that symbol to work out the other symbol.

The feedback tells you if you got it right or wrong.

Recommendation: I recommend this for year 5&6 because it is algebra and that is hard.
